The drawings I've made in Rhinoceros; very simple and useful tool. After watching few tutorials I was able to draw this project.

It really looks amazing. Very sporty look.

I am curious about how you balance it from one camera to another. One of the main things a gimbal needs to work well is a good weight balance.

Jesus, true it was my concern how to deal with nice view and practical usage. In the cf structure after deep analysis of COG Ive designed some "stadion" holes for adjustment and it is enough for common size of cameras.

Slick, to say the least!

Tested on Sony rx100, which seems on some of your pictures? Do you plan to commercialize it?

John, at the moment 10 pcs during tests fly then serial production will be run.

That is a truly beautiful design... will it take a Black Magic Micro Cinema cam?

No room for cable release with Olympus, no COG adjstment?... anyway beautiful :)

Jose, hollow shaft in the engine and in to opposite sensor shaft allows threaded wires. COG adjustment possible - oval holes for the screws. All hidden inside.

Beautiful Design! Were you able to use female molds or did you go for a bladder?
